Coronavirus
+ Temporary Enrollment

Are you worried about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and your child’s safety and education?

With the surge of reported cases of COVID-19 worldwide, it’s no wonder that parents are concerned about their children’s health and welfare at school. Schools across the United States are closed. Epidemiologists are predicting wide-spread longer-term school closures in the coming months which will leave millions of American students without a classroom. Unfortunately, most school districts are not prepared to conduct classes in a remote learning environment once this happens.

Enlightium Academy (Enlightium) is accepting fast track temporary enrollments for the last quarter of the 2019-2020 school year. Once enrolled, your student will finish up eight (8) weeks of courses and earn 0.25 credits. For students who may be further behind, this can be extended into the summer to keep your student on track.

Providing a Safer Alternative to Attending School

With Enlightium Academy, you can provide your child a safe learning environment at home while they take courses online and finish the school year on time. Most students can finish the last quarter of the school year within eight weeks. Once the quarter is complete, your student has several options. If Enlightium ends up being a good long-term fit for your student, you may elect to withdraw from your current school and transfer to Enlightium for the coming school year as a full-time or part-time student. For temporary enrollment, you can transfer the credits earned at Enlightium Academy back to your school of choice once they are completed. It’s a simple way to get peace of mind knowing that you’ve done everything you can to protect your child and prevent them from falling behind academically.

What online schooling options do you provide for families who want to protect their children from exposure to COVID-19?

We are currently accepting both permanent and temporarily displaced students to finish up the last quarter of the school year so your child’s education doesn’t get put on hold while COVID-19 runs its course in your community.

International students are accepted if they are coming to Enlightium from an English-speaking school with a course load and rigor comparable to US standards.

If my child falls ill due to COVID-19, what kind of flexibility does Enlightium offer?

One of the key benefits of online schooling is the amount of flexibility built into the curriculum. Students can work on their assignments from anywhere, whenever it is convenient. If a student falls behind due to illness, our team will work with you to provide an appropriate amount of time for your student to get back on track. Additionally, students who fall significantly behind can be given more time to finish during the summer months.
Online Schooling

How will attending Enlightium Academy be the same or different from a traditional school?

Students work at their own pace through our online curriculum but are accountable for keeping up with the weekly schedule in general. They do not have to show up in a classroom and will have access to their teachers via messaging for direct support within 24 hours during office hours.

What does a typical day look like for an Enlightium Academy student?

Enlightium students typically work anywhere from 3–5 hours per day. They work independently inside the Ignitia platform to complete their online lessons, quizzes, and tests.

Students primarily interact with teachers via Ignitia, our online platform. Teachers also provide supplementary learning material to support independent learning.
